Revolutionary Erosion Control
EARTHLOK erosion control is a revolutionary solution for erosion control in Australian civil engineering and infrastructure projects.
EARTHLOK erosion control solutions are used in erosion control, the stabilisation of embankments, shoreline protection, swale or table drains, hard stand areas and waterways and more.
Erosion Control - FAQs
How does erosion control work in Australia?
Erosion control products protect exposed substrates from wind, rain and other forms of water flow, preventing soil erosion.
More durable and versatile than standard erosion control in Australia, EARTHLOK erosion control solutions are a revolutionary, Australian-made solution to erosion.
EARTHLOK erosion control solutions are commonly used on slopes, channels and water ways to prevent erosion damage.
Civil engineering projects often need vegetation removal. However, this exposes the bare substrate to the effects of water, wind and human activity, leaving the ground prone to soil erosion.
A lack of erosion control can have serious consequences for a civil engineering project, unless erosion control products are implemented to protect the substrate.
Often, erosion control is installed to slow down the flow of water across a surface. However, erosion control can also be strategically placed to dissipate water pressure so that the force is not acute enough to cause erosion damage.
How long do erosion control blankets last?
Typically made from fibres, whether synthetic or natural, erosion control blankets can be expected to last 4 to 6 years before they degrade.
But EARTHLOK erosion control in Australia is built to last for decades, not years. With a consistently high standard of design and manufacture, EARTHLOK erosion control solutions have an expected product lifespan of 100+ years in vegetative applications and 50+ years in non-vegetative.
EARTHLOK erosion control is Australian-made and environmentally friendly. With a much lower carbon footprint, one truckload of EARTHLOK erosion control is equivalent to 15-20 truckloads of rock.
In addition, EARTHLOK erosion control solutions can be custom-made to almost any size, for any unique design specifications. For a long-lasting erosion control solution, contact EARTHLOK for a custom quote.
What are erosion control blankets for?
Erosion control protects against the damaging effects of erosion.
Scour protection is used in local government infrastructure works and civil engineering projects. Without erosion control, this results in exposed soil, water being redirected to create pressure points, or other erosion from weather, water and vehicle and pedestrian activity.
These detrimental impacts can be mitigated with erosion control products. The best erosion control solutions are cost-effective, durable and have low maintenance needs, while also being environmentally friendly.
EARTHLOK erosion control is Australian-made in Victoria from a revolutionary sustainability technology in scour protection. The concrete used has a Greenstar rating of 3/4, and one truckload of EARTHLOK erosion control is equivalent to 15-20 truckloads of rock.

How do you use erosion control blankets?
Erosion control blankets are laid down to prevent the underlying substrate from being eroded by wind, rain, water flow, and vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
Erosion control solutions are implemented on a civil engineering site where vegetation and topsoil have been removed. The soil is compacted and the subgrade is prepared appropriately for the specific application.
Then, erosion control products are placed on top to protect the substrate from potential erosion.
Erosion control solutions act to stabilise the substrate to protect it from erosion damage. Erosion control also prevents the soil from shifting and can help vegetation re-growth, further stabilising the ground.
